New Project

04-14-2010 10:48 PM by rangercarr | 6 comments »

Well, my baseball’s been incredibly crazy lately so I haven’t been able to get around to working on any new projects. Right now I’ve pretty much decided on the following: baseball bat rack (for my room), cherokee star (for my room), fibonacci guage (for my calculus teacher), a pendant for my girl, a crayon box for my 7yo brother, and probably some kind of hot plate for my mom, for my dad I’m thinking a bandsaw box, or a wooden journal, a light house (for my dad) a few ...

Laptop case #1: Finger joints or Full-through Dovetail joints?

04-14-2010 06:20 PM by ManofStone | 3 comments »

Just to clarify, I am manofstone’s son. He is letting me use this to post a question about my project. I am building a laptop case that will also work as a clipboard (when the lid is down) as well as storage for notebooks, pencils, etc. I have a Porter Cable Dovetail jig, which I am currently fighting with to make the joints align properly. As I was making the cuts, I realized two things: If the lid, which will be hinged to the case, is 16” wide and the length is 11”, sho...

Adventures in Vacuum Veneering #5: Lingerie Chest Build

04-14-2010 05:48 PM by SPalm | 14 comments »

I got in way over my head on this one, and I still have a long way to go. I wanted to do a piece with some veneering work, so I picked a Lingerie Chest. The wife unit wanted one, so it started. I also found out that a Lingerie Chest was to have seven drawers, for the seven days of the week. Who knew? So I veneered two panels of 3/4 inch MDF with quarter-sawn cherry. They are about 42 inches by 14 inches. I used the home made shower curtain bag with my vacuum pump. That will probably ...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #25: Birch and Moose.................

04-14-2010 04:37 PM by Jim Bertelson | 10 comments »

I posted this same item in an old post about birches by Don Butler, and thought it was worth reproducing as a blog item. The picture has been used in a very old blog item here before….............. Moose like birch too….........a picture from my front porch…... ....if you look closely, you will see the peeling bark on this birch, which is pretty typical. Don Butler had posted a picture of a birch that was really exfoliating its bark and wondered what was going on. ...
